I taught my black kids that their elite upbringing would protect them from discrimination. I was wrong.

You may be familiar with the work of Lawrence Otis Graham since he is a Princeton alum and has written quite extensively about his experiences as a person of color. While I have not agreed with everything that he has written what I have ALWAYS respected is his ‘seat at the table’. As this article demonstrates, Mr. Graham has the clout to get his story out there to the masses.  The title of this Washington Post article stopped me in my tracks because initially all that I saw was the first sentence, the writer wanted to whet my appetite for more and left off the second sentence. I decided not to play that same game here 🙂

I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did.
